This is an older park but they are doing their best to make everyone's stay pleasant. We were in the front in the big rig area which is basically a big open field in site of the road. The sites that are more shaded are very tight and would be hard for a large camper to navigate.
There was not much road noise at night, though there is a train that comes through blowing its horn every weeknight about 3 a.m., so that can be a little hard on your sleeping!
But we enjoyed our stay. They have all kinds of things for kids to do on the weekends and we would stay here again. It is convenient to Watkins Glen and Corning. It is very dog friendly also. - mary mcmoo

Our second stop here and it will be our last. Loud music, yelling and general party atmosphere with no regard to the 11pm quiet hour. We were in the front pull-through area (really, a big field with no shade) and the loud party seemed over at the clubhouse, some distance away. Parking was confusing and generally we didn't enjoy our stay at all, especially considering the price. No thanks, we'll choose somewhere else next time. - 2ColliesInACan

Spent one night. Site was pretty level. Staff were friendly. Park was clean. Mostly seasonal a but separate area for short term. We camped in the open field to the west of the railroad tracks. - Hartleyfam

We paid extra because it was a race weekend at Watkins glen and we couldn't use Passport America. We saw that they had a heated pool so we paid the extra money to stay here. The pool was very cold! Needless to say, we didn't go in. There was no cable TV available at our site ($3 extra) and WiFi was so much per hour or daily rate. It is an older park with mostly permanent trailers, but there were quite a few pull-throughs for overnighters. It's easy on/off I-86 so it was convenient. I don't think we would stay unless we could use Passport America, since their "heated" pool doesn't seem to be heated as advertised. The pool area had a good bit of junk laying around, empty sunblock spray, old socks, etc. - Ginny H

Camp Bell CG is an older facility. This campground is a good base from which to tour the western part of the New York Finger Lakes wine region. The overwhelming majority of units on the premises are seasonal campers and they occupy nearly all sites that have any amount of shade. The sites set aside for transient campers are in a large, grassy open area at the rear of the grounds. Sites here are fairly level side to side and a good many of them are pull-throughs. Interior roads are gravel and in excellent condition. There is no separation between you and your neighbor, however the CG management is thoughtful enough to not put two units next to each other if possible. Check-in was quick. The campground store has basic supplies plus souvenir items. We stayed mid-week and even though there are a good number of other campers here, it is very quiet. There is sometimes a bit of traffic noise from nearby I-86 but we did not find that offensive. Grounds & buildings are clean and well-kept. Sewer is not available so we made use of the bath facilities for showering. Water pressure was not overwhelming but acceptable, with plenty of hot water. The shower stalls could benefit from having a grab bar, plus a small seat to use while changing out of and into your clothing. Fixtures are clean however the showers are in need of repair. One stall had no shelf and a broken clothes hook, a second stall's shelf was in need of repair, and a third stall was missing the plastic knob on the mixer faucet handle (the faucet was usable). Basic WiFi is free, but suffered from periods of very slow loading. You have the option of upgrading connectivity for a nominal fee. Access to the dump station is easy. Not a destination campground but an economical choice if your goal is to explore the area. Rate reflects two in our party. We would stay here again. - RamWagon

Ed and Carmen are great hosts. Ed recommended great local places to eat.
The sites were level and had great satellite reception. The area for the seasonals was very neat and clean. I wish they had some 50 amp service, and would be glad to pay extra for it, but the price is a good value for every thing you get. - johnwadams

Nice place for an overnight stay. Very quiet. Dirt sites were fine during our stay, however could be a problem if it rained. Decent TV reception. No AT & T cell signal. Free wi-fi for 15 minute trial. Wi-fi for a fee after 15 minutes. We didn't need wi-fi so we didn't use it. - tomnorman457

We stopped for the night. We did not use any facilities. Dirt roads, just a park. Nothing fancy. 50 amp was good. Sewer hookup was good. Did not have to unhook in our pull through site. - xflyhighx

Has large, level, grassy sites. Great pool. Poor utilities and terribly slow WiFi (if at all). Good family campground with lots of kid's activities. Decent laundry with 4 machines. - dotr

Sites are very shady with most being located in the trees. Our site had the electric/water hookups on the top of a mound while the sewer was located close to the site. The patio/picnic table/fire ring was located up the side of a hill behind the site. There is a small swimming area in the park on the lake. Roads in the park are tight but manageable. At&T service was OK but we were unable to use our rooftop satellite dish because of the trees. One long hiking trails runs along the lake although its not very well maintained in parts of it. Not close to any grocery stores. We did not get on the lake but it looked very nice. - Co-Mike

The price listed includes a 50% Senior Pass discount. Tompkins is a beautiful campground located along Cowanesque Lake with fairly large sites that are nicely separated from the neighboring sites. Some areas have trees and bushes separating the sites for privacy, while others are in more open areas. The water, 20/30/50 amp electric, and sewer connections were well located on our back-in site (site #3) requiring a minimum of hoses and cord. Water pressure and voltage were both well within acceptable ranges. The sites have a paved RV driveway and a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire pit. The boat launch and swimming areas are well laid out, and easily accessible. There's a 4 mile long maintained hiking trail with some good views of the lake and benches for resting along the way. The only downside we found that keeps this location from getting a 10 rating is the poor to non-existent cell signal for all carriers. That's not the campground's fault of course, but something to be aware of. We would definitely camp here again. - NYDutch

This is a great campground! Sites are very well laid out, with only a couple of exceptions in the Knoll loop. I had a site overlooking the lake this trip and it was really nice. Quiet campers all around, although as it was early June and the park was not full. The only thing detracting from the campground is the road noise from the road on the other side of the lake. It's not a problem at night though. That's the only reason I don't give it a 10. - Pickycamper

We took our grandchildren and daughters camping here and had plenty to keep all the kids busy. Normally most campgrounds have one jumping pillow but this one had TWO. The campsite was a very easy pull through and took no time to set up. We will be re-visiting. - dmlord

Our rate reflected a basic full hook up site. Geography at campground is mostly level and very lightly wooded. This is a full resort campground with enough amenities to keep families at the campground if they were to choose to. Our off season WiFi worked well, 3g signal on our Verizon cell phone. Professional and friendly staff. Expect noise from the local race track during day time hours. Also expect daily and sometimes nightly visits from the local freight train from across the street of the campground. Our site hookups were in good working order, noticed most power boxes seemed to be newer/updated. Most sites seemed relatively level. Interior roads & sites had crushed stone. Camp store seemed well stocked and was tastefully decorated. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a bench to put your stuff on. Noticed a multitude of site sizes and price ranges to accommodate the many different types of RV's. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Beautiful park would definitely stay again. The park itself has so much to do, you could just go to get away, but it was too cold to do anything outside in April.
Only problem, was the laundry area was too small. The equipment was old, there was no change machine. The dryers were 25 cents for 5 minutes! After using $10.25 worth of quarters, I ended up with undried laundry everywhere in the our rig. Not pleasant.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was concrete pad, gravel and grass, featuring a fire ring, picnic table and patio - Disneydonna25

I am over ten yr user here, seldom moved to comment. But as others noted, stated ppa rate $17.50 by phone, quoted $19.00 on arrival, hard try to up charge to $21. Refused any but phone quote for w/30 E. So placed on unlevel, precarious, edge of a deep dry gulch with the deep water wellhead ON my postage stamp site. Low voltage, barely allowed by my EMS. Huge tree prevented full use of slide out. Only reasonable campground for many miles or I would have declined and would NOT return nor recommend. No OTA TV and to purchase cable requires fhu and the inflated rate it incurs. - Wicked Witch

We weren't informed that our space was water & electric only, and once we got setup tried to get TV no stations. Later we were out and found someone to talk to, they informed us that for $3 more we could get cable. That was not communicated to us. We weren't given a map of the grounds or informed where the showers or restrooms were. The showers, no hooks for your things in the shower, and the water temp is not adjustable. Not impressed, even though the grounds are well kept. - sambasstuff

We chose this park because we are members of Passport America discount camping club. We were in the area and had to drive a little out of our way to find a reasonable rate for a campsite.
The advertised rate was $16/night on the Passport America site. We called to verify availability before arriving but not the nightly rate. When checking in we were told the rate was $18 and that "they" had it wrong on their website.
Now, $2/night is no big deal for a four-night stay, but it just sours the experience when things are not as they are quoted.
We found a site with full hookups and got settled for the night. The next morning at 8 am the pounding started outside our door. Apparently the RV next door was being replaced with a park model trailer. This park is loaded with seasonal units and very few transient sites. Most of the transient sites they have do not include sewer service. You have to ask for that!
Long story short, we were asked to move so they could get the old trailer out and the new one in. You mean they did not know that the day before?
Once we settled in another site we were fine. The Electric service worked fine, the sewer hookup was a 3" service, but was new, and water pressure was good at 60 psi.
We were in site 23 on the end of a row which was good, close to the laundry, but every golf cart in the place paraded by all day long. It was like being in Florida in February.
The campground was off the main highway through Bath NY so if you are in the area, need a spot for the night, and are Passport members, it will get the job done. Just verify the rate as it is subject to change! - Howard Jaros

This state park is conveniently located near the village of Watkins Glen. We found the sites quite spacious although not terribly private. The bathrooms really needed cleaning. The area is beautiful, but this park would benefit with more maintenance (both daily and long-term). We camped in a loop without electricity. - MSSW

Memorial Day May 30, 2016 Site 99 Tuesday/Wed May 31 and June 1 Watkins Glen is located on Seneca Lake with the State Park right in town on the west side. Cute town and on the Finger Lakes Seneca Wine Trail. The international race way was just west of the park and you could hear them warming up on some mornings but it was not a problem. This campground was rated one of the top five in the Nation last year and I could see why. There are six camping loops with only one Mohawk Village having electric. Bath houses were clean and there were two showers in each one. There is a dump station, water fill, playgrounds, picnic tables, fire pits and trails from the Onondaga Village loop to the Gorge itself. If you are camping your pass is good for parking in town at the Gorge entrance and for the swimming pool within the campground which is huge. There is an Inn in the park as well. There are trails and they are very hilly. Pets are allowed in the camping loops (with proof of rabies) and on many trails but not on the Gorge Trail. The two trails on the rim are allowed for walking pets and there are two small bridges that connect to the Gorge Trail. We were in the electric loop and there were many huge sites which a large RV could fit. Our loop was very quiet during the day and most nights. Walking from the entrance to the loops is all up hill. The park itself is beautiful and everyone should see part of the Gorge. In the summer for a fee shuttles from the main entrance in the village will take you to the top so that you only have to walk down. There are many waterfalls (19-24) along the Gorge Trail. In the village there are shops, restaurants and a beautiful park for picnicking, parking, boating and there might be some swimming . Seneca Lake has a wine trail with about 19 wineries on the east side and over 29 on the west side. The Finger Lake region is beautiful with rolling hills and t. - gsnakehill

Beautiful park with wonderful scenic hike through slot canyon gorge. Park is older, needs some trees trimmed and some removed. Trees on the CG roads require 90 degree turn into sites and not wide enough to maneuver tow vehicle. Little maintenance at sites, ie: cig butts. Very busy with many campers partying, music and lots of smoke from campfires. - Blue Highways Traveler

Price reflects a two week stay. Asphalt/gravel interior roads. Grass/gravel sites. Have straight back-ins and straight pull-throughs. Has two speed bumps. Quiet park. Unfortunately allows campfires and unable to have windows open much due to them. Over 100 channels of cable TV with a guide channel. Internet was great when it worked, but was slow and limited a lot. Easy in and out with a 60 foot combo. - Tallboy

The campground itself is small and has few amenities but across the street is the park, wonderful for families with many options. A short jaunt on the crosswalk brings you to W.W. Clute Park which has a small beach with lifeguard stand, tons of playground equipment, a large pavilion perfect for a family reunion or club meetings, horseshoe pits, tons of shade, grills, picnic tables and benches with an outstanding view of Seneca Lake. The campground is also conveniently located adjacent to the Glen Harbor Marina and boat launch. Lots of fast food and full service restaurants, Walmart, and other shops are within a mile or two drive. The campground only has two showers but they are clean and equipped for wheelchair access. There are no laundry facilities but there is a laundromat nearby in town. The sites are gravel and fairly level. The WIFI is better than most and the cable brings in many stations. My AT&T service gets full bars here. Hurray! - Lucy's Friend

As others have mentioned, location is the main draw for this RV Park. It is an easy walk to Walmart or into town, and across the street is a small park right on the lake. We walked our dog there daily and he loved to get wet at the little beach. The RV park itself we found to be rather cramped and unattractive. It's basically rows of RVs on a grassy field with not much spacing between them (though we have definitely seen smaller sites elsewhere). They have lines spray painted on the grass and you need to park within those lines. Unfortunately for us, staying within the lines meant the front/side of our motorhome was smushed into the tree on our site. We had someone trim a few branches so we could open our door, but we couldn't open our awning at all. Our fire ring was all the way at the front of the site, right next to the road, which was strange. Most of the sites are occupied by semi-permanent trailers and fifth wheels (and a few mobile homes) that appear to get intermittent use (e.g. weekend visits). The WiFi worked decently during the day, and we had strong Verizon and AT&T for evenings and weekends. Given the high price ($55 daily or $47 weekly) we found that the "near town" location didn't make up for the averageness of the campsites/campground. If you really want to be walking distance from town and don't mind somewhat cramped sites, this may be a good option. - LifeRebooted

Interagency Senior Pass 50% discount for a 50 amp electric and water site. Site had a concrete pad that was slightly off side to side so we had to block tires on one side. There were a couple trees that had low hanging branches that rubbed the motorhome. We had good satellite reception, but the trees will interfere with many sites. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. This is a quiet and pleasant Army Corps of Engineers park. We would stay here again. - Dave51
Sep 2016 - $17.00
This was a hidden gem! The campsites were very spacious. There were concrete pads at each site. Trees and grass made things feel very "campy." There was a marina and boat ramp on a lake. My only complaint was that we did not get a sewer hookup (other sites had them) and there was no Wifi available. These are not problems for weekend campers but for full-timers like us, it limits our stay considerably. The park administration building had a nature tree walk and there was a camp store onsite selling supplies, ice, and firewood. - Melodycthomas

Nice large sites. Lots of room between campers. Hook ups are well placed. Interior roads are easy to navigate on. Enjoyed my stay except....Need to enforce rules of the dog owners even after you report them! (camping people need to read up on the rules on having a dog in your park and follow them) I feel if they don't follow them they should be told to leave! - Gary O

This park is one of the very best I have ever been to! The sites were level, the staff top notch, the amenities among the best available. If ever I am in this area of the Finger Lakes area of New York I will go out of my way to stay here. And oh, by the way, my two fur babies and their sister really enjoyed the dog park! - Hmuse

We stopped here for one night. They have nice, very long pull-thrus with full hookups. That was perfect as we didn't have to unhook from our travel trailer. They have different types of very long pull-thrus. They gave us one of the regular ones. I wish they offered us one of the big rig sites as those are a little larger and seemed altogether better sites. I think $55 was way too much for what we got. Maybe for families that will use the pools and participate in the activities, it would be worth it, but I doubt it. - Nathalie Bergeron
